We created this resource as a way to help you and your peers address some important things that aren’t usually talked about, but are important to think about at this juncture in your life.

Psychological Counselling

Holding hands

University life can be fun and fulfilling, providing students various opportunities to acquire new skills and knowledge, develop character, and make friends from different states and cultures. However, adjusting to the new environment and managing academic and personal demands may induce some amount of stress and anxiety. Confiding in family or friends is a good coping strategy but students can also walk in and meet the counsellors available at SSETU.

Personal Counselling

Students can talk openly about:

  • Academic pressures
  • Pre-exam stress
  • Anxiety about career
  • Peer pressure
  • Missing home and family
  • Coping in a new environment etc.
  • Relationship difficulties
  • Family issues

They can also discuss tips for studying, preparing for exams, managing time, meeting deadline for projects and assignments and similar issues related to academic life.

SSETU provides counselling for personal, academic or relationship issues in an environment of complete privacy and confidentiality.

Ahmedabad University family members have availed the services of the in-house counsellors, spanning more than 1000 sessions.

Distance Counselling

The University extends the counselling service to make it even more inclusive. Collaboration with an online portal, YourDOST offers another platform to students. It ensures anonymity in addition to confidentiality and trust. This portal offers online chats, audio calls and even video calls for one to one counselling.

Panel of Mental Health Professionals

The University is committed to providing wellness services to its community of students, faculty and staff. To augment the services further, a panel of mental health professionals has been taken on board and their services are available to the University community. These professionals have expertise in various domains and are qualified psychiatrists, psychologists or counsellors.

Health Centre

A Senior Consulting Physician who has also specialised in Gynaecology, Dr Gayatri Raval visits from Monday to Friday from 10 am to 3 pm. Students are free to walk in for free consultation. The Health Centre at SSETU is actively involved in rendering medical consultation to students and staff who walk in to see Dr Raval.
